To restore the glory of the Chinese ceramics industry, Spin seeks to make the craft trendy by creating clever and affordable functional contemporary pieces. The products are made in Jingdezhen, China’s ceramics capital, and priced from $7 for a chopstick stand to $478 for a vase.
“We only display one piece of each design as we want to draw attention to the detailing of the products,” says founder, Alan. With clean, organic lines, everyday household items get turned into statement pieces – a ceramic lamp that looks like crushed paper, while a white teapot takes on the elegant lines of a ballerina when viewed from above. Even a jewellery box gets an unorthodox revamp with its design inspired by old biscuit moulds.
Spin by Essential Lifestyles is at #04-01, Holland Road Shopping Centre and #02-17, Millenia Walk.
